 Happy Wednesday everyone! What a long couple of weeks it has been. Travel always has a way of making you lose track of time. Last Monday, I left for New York where I spent 3 nights, then I was off to London for 3 nights and Paris for two nights. Now, after having landed in LA late last night I feel a bit turned around. But boy was it worth it. I am so madly in love with Europe. London & Paris will always be two of my favorite cities. I'm excited to share some of the images from my trip with you all! Until then, here is a look I shot a few days before leaving. I scored these amazing jeans on the clearance rack at H&M (for $10!). As much as I love a well-made handbag or pair of shoes, I am a total cheapskate at heart and I love a good bargain even more. 

Thanks so much for visiting! I'm happy to be home and back to a regular posting schedule.

This city is so insanely gorgeous.

Happy Monday! 
I just wanted to share this look that I wore for Valentine's Day with you all. A few weeks ago I took a little trip to H&M and scored some MAJOR goodies on the sale rack. This dress was only $30 and I adore the tiered skirt with these lovely, ladylike ruffles. The print and color combo made it perfect for the most romantic day of the year.  

Also, I'm currently on my way to NYC to catch the tail end of New York Fashion Week. From what I hear, it's going to be super cold but I brought every faux fur that I own so I'm sure that I'll be just fine. Be sure to keep up with the fun by following along on Twitter & Instagram. And, speaking of Instagram, I'll be taking over the YMI Jeans account tomorrow so be sure to follow them for an extra sneak peek into my trip! 

Thank you so much for reading!

Adventure Seeking

 I told myself the 2015 would be my year for adventure, and so far, I'm off to a pretty good start. Although, I've mainly been sticking to places that are right in my backyard, it's still so fun to visit them. A few weeks ago, I ventured off to Abalone Cove, a gorgeous place a little ways off from Palos Verdes, where Jonny and I shot these photos. And last weekend, my girlfriends and I ventured off to Paradise Cove in Malibu for a day trip. I now realize how wonderful it is to be curious, though it has gotten me into trouble in the past. I look forward to seeing what other adventures my curiosity takes me on. I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I enjoyed shooting them! 

Thanks so much for visiting me.

Matchy Matchy + A Luxy Hair Giveaway!

 I know what you're thinking. This jacket and this skirt are such a cute little matching set right? No, they actually aren't a set! When I received this super chic jacket from Shop Tobi, I was shocked at how well it match my little CR skater skirt. I added in a mustard sweater for a pop of color and grey strappy sandals to make this look just a bit more sexy. 

Also, I'm excited to be hosting a giveaway with Luxy Hair Extensions! I'm not usually one to kiss and tell, but I have recently started wearing their clip-in extensions on occasion to make my hair a bit more full and they are just so amazing! I will be giving a pair away to one lucky reader. Just make sure to be subscribed to A Keene Sense of Style by entering your email up top & follow the simple steps below! Also, you can take a peek at my latest video where I'm styling their extensions four ways! 

Thanks so much for entering and to Luxy Hair for partnering with me!

Happy Monday everyone!
Spring has been peeking it's head out for a few weeks now, so I've decided to give in to temptation and take a few of my spring faves out for a spin. With that being said, white denim is always a must-have for me in the warmer months. While I do pull it out occasionally in the fall and winter, I practically live in it during the summer. For today's look, I paired it with a sleeveless trench a yellow tank and brightly colored accessories. 

I hope you had a great weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by!
